I am so sorry to hear about this development. After I saw the article on the Partners listserve I immeadiately emailed Sen. Rupp and Rep. Parkinson to express my disappointment. Seems like FHSD is acting like a bully, they will let the legislators tour the seclusion rooms, but not let the rest of us see them via a tv report.
